Waiting for Perl 6 futile at this point of time. Almost 12 years have come to pass. And there is nothing good available that can replace Perl 5 or even some other language like Python or Ruby in production environments.
We need to come out of this thing and deal with it. There is not going to be a Perl 6.
The world has moved on, and those who wish to stick with Perl have seen Perl 5 doing pretty well. With all the Modern Perl movement, Perl 5 is still good. And I guess that will be for the remaining bit life of Perl.
Perl 6 was the imaginary future, which never came to happen. And isn't likely to happen for many many years from now. Given that uncertainty. No one serious is ever going to bet on Perl 6.
But thoughts from Perl 6 have helped Perl 5. At this point of time that seems to be the only helpful thing Perl 6 has achieved.
